Neurology is one of the major specialties within The London Clinic. Some of the leading neurologists practicing in the UK today treat private patients here. We are able to offer diagnosis and therapy for a wide range of neurological conditions from common illnesses such as headaches and back pain to complex neurological disorders, head injuries and vascular brain disease.

Neurologists work closely with consultants who specialise in neurosurgery.

Together, the neurology and neurosurgery specialties form the neurosciences centre of The London Clinic.

What is neurology?

Neurology is a branch of medicine that deals with any illness, disease or injury that affects the nervous system. This includes:

The central nervous system: the brain and spinal cord.
The peripheral nervous system: the nerves that extend from the spinal cord to tissues and organs in the head, abdomen, arms and legs.

Neurology involves diagnosing the underlying problem and then managing that problem to reduce its impact on both length of life and quality of life.

Neurology expertise

To become a neurologist allowed to practice in the UK, a doctor who has qualified in medicine and has completed one or 2 years as a junior hospital doctor then needs to pass the exam to be accepted as a Member of the Royal College of Physicians.

He or she then embarks on several years of specialist training as a neurologist, gaining research experience and learning about psychiatry and rehabilitation medicine, as well as the practice of neurology.

The London Clinic has high standards and consultants who are accepted to practice here must demonstrate that they can provide exceptional medical expertise.
